Weʼre raising £3,000 to help fund life extending Cancer treatment for Car Gammon so that she can make more memories with her partner and their two young children.

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Carolyn Gammon is 43 years old and lives in Cwmavon, Port Talbot with her partner Gos and two children Rudy (3) and Mira (6 months). Carolyn was diagnosed with breast Cancer during pregnancy and despite undergoing Chemotherapy and a mastectomy, the Cancer has now spread and is terminal.
Carolyn will, at some point, require life extending drugs which are not routinely available on the NHS in Wales. We are raising money to contribute towards the £150,000 Carolyn needs in order to privately fund treatment that will give her precious extra years with her family. These drugs could be the difference between Carolyn's children being able to remember her, or not.
We are a mixed group of half marathon, marathon and ultra runners who vary in experience from first-time ultra runners to very experienced ultra veterans (mostly the former). We're looking forward to the challenge and hope to raise plenty of money to contribute towards 'curly car's cancer fund' (more info here https://www.gofundme.com/curlycarsfund)
